What is Green Grants?

The City's Water Quality Program (WQP) has created the Green Grants Program for property owners who seek to improve water quality and/or go beyond their Stay-on-Volume (SOV) requirement for a green infrastructure (GI) redevelopment or retrofit project.

The grant will provide businesses, institutions and other non-single family residential customers partial funding for the design and construction of green infrastructure projects on private properties.

    Some examples of green infrastructure are, but are not limited to:
  • Bioretention
  • Pervious Pavement
  • Green Roofs
  • Tree Trenches/boxes
  • Reduced Impervious Surfaces
  • Capture and Reuse
  • Naturalized Basins


  • To increase water quality of Chattanooga's local waterways by focusing efforts on existing sites that currently have no water quality control measures
  • To foster community stewardship and enthusiasm for green infrastructure
  • To spark interest of property owners to invest in green infrastructure retrofits


  • Green Grants is available to property owners of privately owned commercial, industrial, institutional, or multi-family residential properties within Chattanooga City limits
  • City staff will evaluate applications. Projects will be evaluated based on criteria listed in the Green Grants program outline 
  • Government and government-required projects are not eligible to participate in this program
